PINOY PRIDE! Proud AMAer From Cebu Wins Best Position Paper Award In Global Goals MUN 2019


KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Jerel John Velarde, a student of AMA College Cebu, bagged the award for Best Position Paper in the Global Goals Model United Nations (MUN) 2019 held last January 11-14.

Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an extra-curricular activity in which students typically roleplay delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. This activity takes place at MUN conferences, which is usually organized by a high school or college MUN club. At the end of most conferences, outstanding delegates in each committee are recognized and given an award.


Velarde shares on his facebook post that he bested over 150 other delegates from different countries and had intense debates with other delegates including the Chair and Secretary of the event in order to defend his stand regarding policies that he truly believe in. He also shares that the experience taught him a lot about leadership and diplomacy, which is very important for molding future leaders like him. Below is his actual post on his FB account: #AMAESnews
